What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

The iCamera KEEP Pro is the first DIY smart home security camera to offer Motion Tracking - The ability to automatically identify dangers and pan & tilt to track and record activity.  With an industry-leading 4 megapixel image sensor, custom Activity Zones, Sound Recognition of smoke alarm and carbon monoxide sirens, and integration with the iSmartAlarm Home Security System, Amazon Alexa, and IFTTT, the iCamera KEEP Pro is everything a DIY smart home security camera should be, and more.

 Demonstrating the iCamera KEEP Pro's Motion Tracking in our office - As you can see, the camera reacts to Jennifer coming down the stairs and walking to a desk, and then follows her back to the stairs and out of sight.  The real-time live view in the app shows exactly how the recorded video would look in this prototype.

All features are controlled through the simple, intuitive, and award-winning iSmartAlarm app, available for iOS and Android devices. Multiple cameras can be used with your home's dual-band Wi-Fi communication, or up to 10 cameras can be linked to the iSmartAlarm Home Security System for complete home security with free phone, email, SMS text, and push notifications in case of emergencies.*  

*Phone and SMS notifications only available in US and CA.  Phone, email, and SMS notifications are only available when the iCamera KEEP Pro has been linked to a CubeOne. 

   

The iSmartAlarm Home Security System is a DIY smart home security system with no monthly fees, no contracts, and no setup costs. The iCamera KEEP Pro is a Wi-Fi smart home and security camera, and can also be linked with the iSmartAlarm Home Security System.   

The CubeOne™ acts as the brain and hub of the system, allowing iSmartAlarm devices and sensors to communicate back to the user through cloud technology.  Intrusions or unauthorized activity will send a push notification, email, text message, and phone call to your family to make certain you can properly act if there is an emergency. An intrusion when the system is armed also triggers the iSmartAlarm's 110 dB sirens as well as act as a trigger all cameras to record activity.  

 You can use your Amazon Alexa devices (Echo, Dot, and Tap) to control your iCamera KEEP Pro! Just say the magic words, and you can arm, disarm, and much more.  

The iCamera KEEP Pro works with web-based IFTTT to be able to communicate with hundreds of devices including Nest, Phillips Hue light bulbs, Smart Things, geolocation services, and much more.  

   

We've built and run 4 crowdfunding campaigns, and we've succeeded with each campaign. Our original campaign in 2013 launched the iSmartAlarm brand, and raised over 450% of our goal.  In 2014 we returned with the iCamera KEEP, providing free cloud video storage and pan-tilt motorized controls to a market that was missing it.  2015 brought Spot, the coolest smart home camera ever, with a flexible magnetically mounted base. Spot also introduced Sound Recognition and time lapse custom video creation.  

iSmartAlarm products are sold nationally and internationally in Best Buy, Best Buy Canada, Amazon, Home Depot, and many more locations.

Risks and challenges

All crowdfunding campaigns run into snags or issues. It is inevitable. But we have a significant advantage. We’re uniquely qualified to do what we say we will do in the timeframe we say we’ll do it - This is our fourth crowdfunding campaign, and we’ve succeeded with each one in providing our products quickly and efficiently to contributors and fans.

Just last year, we ran a fantastic campaign on Kickstarter for Spot, the most flexible smart home camera ever. We raised over $160,000 and fulfilled all of our Rewards on time!

Can we guarantee there will be no hiccups? No, no one ever can. But we’ve conquered all of the usual hurdles already. We’ve made it through design, development, supply chain logistics, and molding processes. We have a functional prototype of the iPhone and Android app, and the hardware is in place and working on multiple in-office models. We’ve tested, re-tested, and re-tested our prototypes, and the iCamera KEEP Pro is built on a well-established platform so we have a significant advantage. We have an amazing team in place. We’re very far along in the process, with design in place, manufacturing and engineering established with companies we have worked with for years.

We promise we will do everything in our power to minimize delays, and deliver your KEEP Pro(s) as soon as possible.
